A campsite is a place for camping or an overnight stay outdoors. The exact meaning differs in American and British English. 

In the US, a campsite means a spot on the campground where one can pitch a tent or park a camper. 

In the UK, a campsite (US – campground) is a designated piece of land where people can camp (using tents, campervans, etc.) that might have such amenities as 

  • toilets, 
  • showers, 
  • picnic tables, 
  • playgrounds, 
  • parking areas,
